- Armilla, Salmon Arm
- Campertunity, Vancouver
- CertiCraft, Nelson

The March 16th OKGN Angel Summit Finale is the culmination of a 10-week program where accredited investors and startup founders are introduced to angel investing through a guided, hands-on process. Community members are encouraged to attend and learn more about the world of angel investing and the startup ecosystem.
Since its inception in 2019, the OKGN Angel Summit has contributed to over $4 million being invested into Canadian startups, training over 140 entrepreneurs and engaging with over 80 accredited investors. In addition to the investments, the Summit is really all about activating connections in the investment community and strengthening Western Canada’s startup ecosystem.
